“I decided to re-skill myself in the world of fi nance having enjoyed a successful 22 year career as an IT professional. My ultimate goal at the time was to complete the MSc in Financial Risk Management in Maynooth, however the advice I received was that the Higher Diploma would form an important stepping
stone towards this ultimate objective. This turned out to be excellent advice which led me to successfully complete the MSc I wanted in 2012.”
